Sudan Woman Sentenced to Death for Being a Christian 'To Be Freed'

This just posted on BBCs web site: Another answered prayer? or Political pressure? or both?

Sudanese authorities are to free a woman who was sentenced to death for having abandoned the Islamic faith, a foreign ministry official says. When, in fact, she never was of the Islamic faith. Her father was Islamic, her mother Orthodox Christian. The father left when Meriam was very small and she was raised a Christian.

Meriam Ibrahim, who recently became a mother, will be freed from custody in a few days' time, the official said. Hopefully, before they carry out the other part of the sentence, the 100 lashes for adultery - for sleeping with her own husband.

Meriam gave birth last week in prison, with her feet shackled.

That's all we have at the moment.
